With so many people choosing email over traditional snail mail these days, it seems as though post offices are feeling a bit left out in the Internet age. The U.N.’s Universal Postal Union hopes to change that with the creation of a .post domain.
Before the name can go live, however, approval is also necessary from the Board of Directors. After ICANN’s meeting in Seoul on October 30, a pubic comments process will begin. If no major obstacles are encountered in these two phases, we could see a .post domain soon.
